Batman, Volume 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles (Batman, Volume III #4) Reviews

    The Joker?s lost his sense of humour and he?d kill to get it back - specifically Batman but also anyone standing in his way. Like The Riddler, whose ego won?t allow anyone else to take down Batman but him. And so the two go head to head in all-out war on the Gotham streets, ropin...

    If you asked me to name top 5 villains of Batman both Joker AND Riddler would be on my list. While Joker is insane and his unpredictable tactics make him interesting, Riddler cold calculated, overbearing personality makes him almost as equally interesting. Put them together and at each...

    FINALLY! Finally, a solid, well-done solo Rebirth Batman story! I was not a fan of the first three volumes in this series, but this one really made up for it. Tom King has had some great ideas in this series but until now, they've all been fumbled by messy storytelling. This one was co...

    Tom King is firing on all cylinders with The War of Jokes and Riddles. An incredibly tense, emotional and downright scary story of a mob war between two of Batman's greatest villains, the Joker and the Riddler. I could get a bit nitpicky and say that not every story beat here works wel...

    The Joker and Riddler go to war. We just see windows into the war instead of the war as a whole. While there were parts of this I liked (Kite Man, surprisingly), there was a lot that didn't ring true. For one, all of these villains picking a side. There are way too many egos involved f...

    Pretty good! So The War of Jokes and Riddles has been a pretty good batman arc that's been happening low key while Snyder is doing his METAL story. I think overall I liked this one! So the story is Batman telling Catwoman the story of The War of Jokes and Riddles, which is basically in...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. With unique charisma and a never-before seen story, writer Tom King, alongside artists Mikel Janín, June Chung and Clay Mann, resuscitate the hopes of fans with what will probably go down as one of the most intriguing wars that th...

    I've read a lot of Batman throughout my life. There's been plenty I've had to muscle thru, but also a lot I couldn't put down. This was the latter. You've done it, Tom King, you've made me fall in love with your Batman. An even greater compliment is that this style of story also doesn'...

    When it comes to Tom Kings Batman run so far i only read Vol 1 I am Gotham.And i wasn't that impressed by it, i thought it was good and entertaining story.I read a couple of issues after that before i got bored and the only reason i came back to read this story was because of issue 24 ...

    I really loved the characterizations of the Joker and the Riddler in this book. They came across as very dangerous and mysterious figures. Also, it explores Batman's insecurities, and a dark secret that he must tell Catwoman before she responds to his proposal. Oh, and we get Catwoman'...

    I'm not following this Rebirth title. Actually, I'm not following any of the Rebirth titles, but I watched this review of The War of Jokes and Riddles on Youtube the other week and the dude did a good job of convincing me to check it out. So I went out and picked up the run. I liked th...

    You can definitely say that Batman has the greatest rogues gallery in comics for many reasons. Each villain is so distinctive that there have been many stories about these characters that even steal the spotlight away from the Dark Knight, which was a curse during the Tim Burton/Joel S...

    This is the best Batman comic I've ever read in all my life, and the illustrations are perfect for the story. Questo é in assoluto il miglior numero di Batman che io abbia mai letto e le illustrazioni sono perfette per raccontare questa storia. THANKS TO EDELWEISS FOR THE PREVIE...

    Really good that is hurt by a choppy issue 3 and 4. World: The art is great, this is the Joker I love, the Riddler that is interesting to me and the splash pages are so good. The art is subtle and brings so much emotions to the story without a single word bubble (just look at Joker ...

    Tom King is a fantastic writer and while he is doing good work with Batman you can't help but feel he could be doing something original. The conflict is interesting and anything with the joker involved is worth the time to read. My only complaint is the arc, as it doesn't have anything...

    A fun story of Gotham's past, and a war between the Joker and the (dark and gritty) nu52 Riddler. It offers a great view of how demented Gotham can be, and even if the Riddler claims that not all stories are about Bats, this story definitely is. It's a good look into Bruce's psyche, so...

    I think the main problem is that I have quite a specific view of the Riddler, and have problems with how this portrays him. For one thing, he's too muscular! For another I can't see him walking around woth his shirt unbuttoned. For another his actions just read as slightly off to me? ...

    This has to be one of the all time best Batman stories I have ever read. And in most ways, it's not even a Batman story. The focus is more on the Riddler and the Joker. And that, in my opinion, is all for the good. Not that I don't like Batman, but this was a refreshing change of focus...

    This was so close to being 4 stars for me. It starts off beautifully, pitting the Riddler and Joker against each other, redefining each of them for Rebirth, with Batman in basically what is Year 2. However, some of the execution felt uneven with the flow and plot seeming disjointed at ...

    3,75 Está bien, no le puedes poner muchas pegas, pero tampoco llega con toda la fuerza que quiere llegar a esa ultima pagina. Bien, pero no me ha emocionado, cosa que en el tejado anteriormente, si lo hizo. ...

    I really didn?t enjoy the last volume, I am Bane, and I was starting to wonder if Tom King wasn?t really all that. With this volume, my worries are greatly allayed. Really dark, super atmospheric art, and great storytelling. At first I was confused until I realized it was a flashba...

    The War of Jokes and Riddles brings the Rebirth era of Batman to a crucial turning point. In the present day, Bruce Wayne recounts a harrowing chapter of his early days as Batman. A critically depressed Joker and a manic Riddler wind up on a collision course over which of them has t...

    I read the entirety of Scott Snyder's and Greg Capullo's Batman in just 5 days. It was an experience that was beyond words and I honestly felt that if one were to lay all the art, action and plot aside; they truly brought something new to the character. I won't go into it a lot, but su...

    Batman, Volume 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles by Tom King is a bedtime story told by Bruce Wayne to Selina Kyle shortly after he asks her for her hand in marriage. Late one night, as they lay together in bed, Selina not yet answering Bruce's marriage proposal; Bruce shares the story o...

    ARC REVIEW Story: A year after Batman took up the cape and cowl a war hit Gotham between Joker and Riddler. In this volume he tells Selina his side and everything he learned by talking to as many of the participants involved as possible. He still feels guilt over what he had to do ...

    [Read as single issues] What is Batman's darkest secret? When he asks Catwoman to marry him, he feels like he has to tell her, so that she can make her decision properly. It all traces back to the aftermath of the Zero Year, when the Joker and the Riddler tore Gotham in half... Plus, ...

    Nothing in King's run on Batman ever matters. Remember when Bane got his back broken, but he was fine the next issue? Or when Bane broke into the bat cave hanged three robins, but no one died? So in this volume we are treated to more things that look "cool" but will once again never ma...

    I had eagerly grabbed Vol. 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles at my library once it hit the new release shelf -- it had been about four months since I had read the previous books. I was curious to see status of Bruce and Selina after some of the prior developments, if nothing else. Wel...

    Yes, Tom King gets all the stars. Dude just knows what he's doing. This volume was bombastic, clever, and emotionally heavy, with incredible exposition on long established Batman characters, in addition to new threads, uniquely King's own. King's Batman has its own, sexy flavor, and wh...

    I am just adoring the tone of this run. Batman is still Batman, but he feels about as human as I can recall him feeling. This take on the Riddler is new to me, but I like it. I find it interesting how King is throwing so many characters into his run without putting some aside to be...

    Tom King is firing on all cylinders with The War of Jokes and Riddles. An incredibly tense, emotional and downright scary story of a mob war between two of Batman's greatest villains, the Joker and the Riddler. I could get a bit nitpicky and say that not every story beat here works wel...

    The Joker and Riddler go to war. We just see windows into the war instead of the war as a whole. While there were parts of this I liked (Kite Man, surprisingly), there was a lot that didn't ring true. For one, all of these villains picking a side. There are way too many egos involved f...

    Pretty good! So The War of Jokes and Riddles has been a pretty good batman arc that's been happening low key while Snyder is doing his METAL story. I think overall I liked this one! So the story is Batman telling Catwoman the story of The War of Jokes and Riddles, which is basically in...

    I've read a lot of Batman throughout my life. There's been plenty I've had to muscle thru, but also a lot I couldn't put down. This was the latter. You've done it, Tom King, you've made me fall in love with your Batman. An even greater compliment is that this style of story also doesn'...

    When it comes to Tom Kings Batman run so far i only read Vol 1 I am Gotham.And i wasn't that impressed by it, i thought it was good and entertaining story.I read a couple of issues after that before i got bored and the only reason i came back to read this story was because of issue 24 ...

    I really loved the characterizations of the Joker and the Riddler in this book. They came across as very dangerous and mysterious figures. Also, it explores Batman's insecurities, and a dark secret that he must tell Catwoman before she responds to his proposal. Oh, and we get Catwoman'...

    You can definitely say that Batman has the greatest rogues gallery in comics for many reasons. Each villain is so distinctive that there have been many stories about these characters that even steal the spotlight away from the Dark Knight, which was a curse during the Tim Burton/Joel S...

    This is the best Batman comic I've ever read in all my life, and the illustrations are perfect for the story. Questo é in assoluto il miglior numero di Batman che io abbia mai letto e le illustrazioni sono perfette per raccontare questa storia. THANKS TO EDELWEISS FOR THE PREVIE...

    A fun story of Gotham's past, and a war between the Joker and the (dark and gritty) nu52 Riddler. It offers a great view of how demented Gotham can be, and even if the Riddler claims that not all stories are about Bats, this story definitely is. It's a good look into Bruce's psyche, so...

    I think the main problem is that I have quite a specific view of the Riddler, and have problems with how this portrays him. For one thing, he's too muscular! For another I can't see him walking around woth his shirt unbuttoned. For another his actions just read as slightly off to me? ...

    This has to be one of the all time best Batman stories I have ever read. And in most ways, it's not even a Batman story. The focus is more on the Riddler and the Joker. And that, in my opinion, is all for the good. Not that I don't like Batman, but this was a refreshing change of focus...

    This was so close to being 4 stars for me. It starts off beautifully, pitting the Riddler and Joker against each other, redefining each of them for Rebirth, with Batman in basically what is Year 2. However, some of the execution felt uneven with the flow and plot seeming disjointed at ...

    Yes, Tom King gets all the stars. Dude just knows what he's doing. This volume was bombastic, clever, and emotionally heavy, with incredible exposition on long established Batman characters, in addition to new threads, uniquely King's own. King's Batman has its own, sexy flavor, and wh...

    The Joker?s lost his sense of humour and he?d kill to get it back - specifically Batman but also anyone standing in his way. Like The Riddler, whose ego won?t allow anyone else to take down Batman but him. And so the two go head to head in all-out war on the Gotham streets, ropin...

    FINALLY! Finally, a solid, well-done solo Rebirth Batman story! I was not a fan of the first three volumes in this series, but this one really made up for it. Tom King has had some great ideas in this series but until now, they've all been fumbled by messy storytelling. This one was co...

    Tom King is firing on all cylinders with The War of Jokes and Riddles. An incredibly tense, emotional and downright scary story of a mob war between two of Batman's greatest villains, the Joker and the Riddler. I could get a bit nitpicky and say that not every story beat here works wel...

    The Joker and Riddler go to war. We just see windows into the war instead of the war as a whole. While there were parts of this I liked (Kite Man, surprisingly), there was a lot that didn't ring true. For one, all of these villains picking a side. There are way too many egos involved f...

    Pretty good! So The War of Jokes and Riddles has been a pretty good batman arc that's been happening low key while Snyder is doing his METAL story. I think overall I liked this one! So the story is Batman telling Catwoman the story of The War of Jokes and Riddles, which is basically in...

    I've read a lot of Batman throughout my life. There's been plenty I've had to muscle thru, but also a lot I couldn't put down. This was the latter. You've done it, Tom King, you've made me fall in love with your Batman. An even greater compliment is that this style of story also doesn'...

    When it comes to Tom Kings Batman run so far i only read Vol 1 I am Gotham.And i wasn't that impressed by it, i thought it was good and entertaining story.I read a couple of issues after that before i got bored and the only reason i came back to read this story was because of issue 24 ...

    I really loved the characterizations of the Joker and the Riddler in this book. They came across as very dangerous and mysterious figures. Also, it explores Batman's insecurities, and a dark secret that he must tell Catwoman before she responds to his proposal. Oh, and we get Catwoman'...

    You can definitely say that Batman has the greatest rogues gallery in comics for many reasons. Each villain is so distinctive that there have been many stories about these characters that even steal the spotlight away from the Dark Knight, which was a curse during the Tim Burton/Joel S...

    This is the best Batman comic I've ever read in all my life, and the illustrations are perfect for the story. Questo é in assoluto il miglior numero di Batman che io abbia mai letto e le illustrazioni sono perfette per raccontare questa storia. THANKS TO EDELWEISS FOR THE PREVIE...

    Really good that is hurt by a choppy issue 3 and 4. World: The art is great, this is the Joker I love, the Riddler that is interesting to me and the splash pages are so good. The art is subtle and brings so much emotions to the story without a single word bubble (just look at Joker ...

    Tom King is a fantastic writer and while he is doing good work with Batman you can't help but feel he could be doing something original. The conflict is interesting and anything with the joker involved is worth the time to read. My only complaint is the arc, as it doesn't have anything...

    A fun story of Gotham's past, and a war between the Joker and the (dark and gritty) nu52 Riddler. It offers a great view of how demented Gotham can be, and even if the Riddler claims that not all stories are about Bats, this story definitely is. It's a good look into Bruce's psyche, so...

    I think the main problem is that I have quite a specific view of the Riddler, and have problems with how this portrays him. For one thing, he's too muscular! For another I can't see him walking around woth his shirt unbuttoned. For another his actions just read as slightly off to me? ...

    This has to be one of the all time best Batman stories I have ever read. And in most ways, it's not even a Batman story. The focus is more on the Riddler and the Joker. And that, in my opinion, is all for the good. Not that I don't like Batman, but this was a refreshing change of focus...

    This was so close to being 4 stars for me. It starts off beautifully, pitting the Riddler and Joker against each other, redefining each of them for Rebirth, with Batman in basically what is Year 2. However, some of the execution felt uneven with the flow and plot seeming disjointed at ...

    I really didn?t enjoy the last volume, I am Bane, and I was starting to wonder if Tom King wasn?t really all that. With this volume, my worries are greatly allayed. Really dark, super atmospheric art, and great storytelling. At first I was confused until I realized it was a flashba...

    The War of Jokes and Riddles brings the Rebirth era of Batman to a crucial turning point. In the present day, Bruce Wayne recounts a harrowing chapter of his early days as Batman. A critically depressed Joker and a manic Riddler wind up on a collision course over which of them has t...

    I read the entirety of Scott Snyder's and Greg Capullo's Batman in just 5 days. It was an experience that was beyond words and I honestly felt that if one were to lay all the art, action and plot aside; they truly brought something new to the character. I won't go into it a lot, but su...

    Batman, Volume 4: The War of Jokes and Riddles by Tom King is a bedtime story told by Bruce Wayne to Selina Kyle shortly after he asks her for her hand in marriage. Late one night, as they lay together in bed, Selina not yet answering Bruce's marriage proposal; Bruce shares the story o...

    ARC REVIEW Story: A year after Batman took up the cape and cowl a war hit Gotham between Joker and Riddler. In this volume he tells Selina his side and everything he learned by talking to as many of the participants involved as possible. He still feels guilt over what he had to do ...

    [Read as single issues] What is Batman's darkest secret? When he asks Catwoman to marry him, he feels like he has to tell her, so that she can make her decision properly. It all traces back to the aftermath of the Zero Year, when the Joker and the Riddler tore Gotham in half... Plus, ...

    Nothing in King's run on Batman ever matters. Remember when Bane got his back broken, but he was fine the next issue? Or when Bane broke into the bat cave hanged three robins, but no one died? So in this volume we are treated to more things that look "cool" but will once again never ma...

    Really good that is hurt by a choppy issue 3 and 4. World: The art is great, this is the Joker I love, the Riddler that is interesting to me and the splash pages are so good. The art is subtle and brings so much emotions to the story without a single word bubble (just look at Joker ...

    Tom King is a fantastic writer and while he is doing good work with Batman you can't help but feel he could be doing something original. The conflict is interesting and anything with the joker involved is worth the time to read. My only complaint is the arc, as it doesn't have anything...

    A fun story of Gotham's past, and a war between the Joker and the (dark and gritty) nu52 Riddler. It offers a great view of how demented Gotham can be, and even if the Riddler claims that not all stories are about Bats, this story definitely is. It's a good look into Bruce's psyche, so...

    I think the main problem is that I have quite a specific view of the Riddler, and have problems with how this portrays him. For one thing, he's too muscular! For another I can't see him walking around woth his shirt unbuttoned. For another his actions just read as slightly off to me? ...

    This has to be one of the all time best Batman stories I have ever read. And in most ways, it's not even a Batman story. The focus is more on the Riddler and the Joker. And that, in my opinion, is all for the good. Not that I don't like Batman, but this was a refreshing change of focus...

    The Joker?s lost his sense of humour and he?d kill to get it back - specifically Batman but also anyone standing in his way. Like The Riddler, whose ego won?t allow anyone else to take down Batman but him. And so the two go head to head in all-out war on the Gotham streets, ropin...

    If you asked me to name top 5 villains of Batman both Joker AND Riddler would be on my list. While Joker is insane and his unpredictable tactics make him interesting, Riddler cold calculated, overbearing personality makes him almost as equally interesting. Put them together and at each...

    FINALLY! Finally, a solid, well-done solo Rebirth Batman story! I was not a fan of the first three volumes in this series, but this one really made up for it. Tom King has had some great ideas in this series but until now, they've all been fumbled by messy storytelling. This one was co...

    Tom King is firing on all cylinders with The War of Jokes and Riddles. An incredibly tense, emotional and downright scary story of a mob war between two of Batman's greatest villains, the Joker and the Riddler. I could get a bit nitpicky and say that not every story beat here works wel...

    The Joker and Riddler go to war. We just see windows into the war instead of the war as a whole. While there were parts of this I liked (Kite Man, surprisingly), there was a lot that didn't ring true. For one, all of these villains picking a side. There are way too many egos involved f...

    Pretty good! So The War of Jokes and Riddles has been a pretty good batman arc that's been happening low key while Snyder is doing his METAL story. I think overall I liked this one! So the story is Batman telling Catwoman the story of The War of Jokes and Riddles, which is basically in...

    Pretty good! So The War of Jokes and Riddles has been a pretty good batman arc that's been happening low key while Snyder is doing his METAL story. I think overall I liked this one! So the story is Batman telling Catwoman the story of The War of Jokes and Riddles, which is basically in...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. With unique charisma and a never-before seen story, writer Tom King, alongside artists Mikel Janín, June Chung and Clay Mann, resuscitate the hopes of fans with what will probably go down as one of the most intriguing wars that th...

    The Joker?s lost his sense of humour and he?d kill to get it back - specifically Batman but also anyone standing in his way. Like The Riddler, whose ego won?t allow anyone else to take down Batman but him. And so the two go head to head in all-out war on the Gotham streets, ropin...

    If you asked me to name top 5 villains of Batman both Joker AND Riddler would be on my list. While Joker is insane and his unpredictable tactics make him interesting, Riddler cold calculated, overbearing personality makes him almost as equally interesting. Put them together and at each...

    FINALLY! Finally, a solid, well-done solo Rebirth Batman story! I was not a fan of the first three volumes in this series, but this one really made up for it. Tom King has had some great ideas in this series but until now, they've all been fumbled by messy storytelling. This one was co...

    I've read a lot of Batman throughout my life. There's been plenty I've had to muscle thru, but also a lot I couldn't put down. This was the latter. You've done it, Tom King, you've made me fall in love with your Batman. An even greater compliment is that this style of story also doesn'...
